Valletta has three streets attracting most of its visitors: Republic Street, at the centre of it all, Merchant Street, which has developed into a foodie's paradise, and Strait Street, which is fast becoming Malta's new nightlife mecca. But there's another street worth checking out, especially if you're visiting during the day: St Paul's Street. We should know, we work here

St Paul's Street is home to iconic buildings like Castille and Strickland House as well as perfectly preserved old haberdasheries and trades shops. But it's also got some other amazing hidden gems that could keep you busy all day. Here are just 11 of them.
